The Power of an Unanticipated Compliment

The other day I was sitting in my office and I started thinking about an acquaintance. She’s a really lovely person who is kind, compassionate, and very giving. While I was having these thoughts, one of my guides said “So tell her how you feel about her.”

I responded, “Just out of the blue?”

“Yes,” the guide replied. “Why not?”

I sent her a message on Facebook and said “Hi, I just wanted you to know how highly I regard you. You’re one of the most caring and compassionate people I know, and I love how you raise people’s vibrations when you’re with them. You’re sending ripples of positive energy through the universe and I just wanted you to know I see you and I think you’re awesome.”

She wrote back to me about 2 hours later and said, “Wow, you just made my day. To be honest, I was having a really bad day today, feeling very lonely, and your message just really came at the right time. I appreciate you reaching out to me and sharing your thoughts. You made me feel loved and not so alone.”

I was so glad I had sent her the note. I started thinking about other people in my life who I really appreciate but don’t get to see or speak with that often and I sent off two more messages to two more people. Both responded similarly. They were touched I was thinking of them and grateful for the compliments I sent.

I decided it would be a good practice to start doing that daily. Pick at least one person in my life and let them know what I love about them. So I did that for about a week and I’ve got to tell you it was enormously pleasing.

First, it connected me with friends and acquaintances I don’t speak to on a daily basis. And second, it made us both feel good. I know that when I feel good, I vibrate at a higher frequency which in turn helps the people around me vibrate higher. Everyone feels good and the ripples spread out in waves.

I encourage you to try this today. Think of three people you don’t connect with daily and send them some kind of message about the ways in which you appreciate them. See what happens. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it weaves positive energy into the fabric of reality.
